Support your Dallas Zoo

We have finally reopened, but there is a long road ahead for the Dallas Zoo to fully recover from our 11-week closure. Your philanthropic support is needed now more than ever. Please consider a gift to our Emergency Operations Fund to help with the care and feeding of our animals and other critical operations.

Bring the Zoo to You

From virtual visits and chats with staff, to showing what the animals are up to and posting activity ideas from our education and conservation teams, we’ll keep bringing the Zoo to you.

Browse Program

Help us feed our browsers (animals who eat tender shoots, twigs, and greenery). We’re always looking for fresh, healthy donations of recently trimmed or felled landscaping from our local community. We may be able to come to you to pick up these items.

Zoo Just For You

Children from the same household can enjoy a guided tour through the Zoo with one of our talented educators just for them! We can book these experiences on demand and will tailor them to the interests and age levels of the children.
